The Simplest Of Weekend Pleasures
 / 

Wyatt Mason on outdoor springtime reading Leaves of Grass (the 1855 edition): “Not least of the pleasures of reading outside is one of the most prosaic: the light’s really good.”

Not many people recognize that while reading from paper, we;re constantly making micro-adjustments, accommodating shifting light, the distance from our tiring eyes, and the like. It’s one of the things reading from the screen doesn’t allow. Good e-readers presumably will change this one day but — like the quality of the light outdoors — this is an advantage for paper.

I love paper.

Paper is great, but reading outside can be tough on a really sunny day. Sometimes having an ePaper that can reduce its overall brightness would be really great. Even if I lost some contrast, I’d probably still prefer it. But of course if they could find some more absorbent blacks it would be even better.
